My Big 30 Blog Candy

Hello my lovely followers!
The 27th of January is a special day for me..
I'm getting old and I still can't believe it.. LOL!
Yes.. It's my 30th Birthday and I still feel like a little girl.. 
Where has the time gone.. LOL!

Anyway.. I've decided to have another Blog Candy..

This is just a small part of what I'll be giving away..
More entries, more goodies for you..
Yayyyyy!!!!


The candy includes 3 Magnolia stamps:

Pink Ribbon Tilda (With Love Collection)
Princess Tilda With Curl (Princes & Princesses Collection)
Tilda With Dot Bow (With Love Collection)
and some paper packs, doilies, flowers, bling and lots and lots of other things that are not in the picture.. 

How do you get a chance at this candy??

1.  Grab the image and display it on your blog sidebar linking it back to here so other folk can join in

2. Leave me a comment under this post
3. If you would like not 1 but 5 chances in the draw all you have to do is send me a greeting card with a Magnolia image on it..  Send me an e-mail at makuc.tina@gmail.com so I can give you my address..


The candy will run until February 15th 2014 and I will randomly choose the winner on February 28th so all the cards that you send me get in my mail before the draw.. :))




I would be really happy if you are a new follower of both my blogs as well, but this is not a requirement to enter, it would just make my day :)
It makes me really sad when someone stops following me when a candy ends.. 


I will be shipping WORLDWIDE..


No candy grabbers.. All the entries from candy-only blogs will be deleted..


Good luck!
Tina

Delivery From Heaven

Hi everyone..
I suppose you already know that I looooove making baby cards and I wish there were a lot more baby themed Magnolia stamps but I never get tired of using the ones I have,,


This is the Delivery From Heaven stamp from the Special Moment Collection 2013..
Great for a boy or a girl but this time I went pink.. Strange.. LOL!
I've made another book card with some papers from Maja Design's Vintage Summer Basics collection..
The image is coloured with Distress Inks and then completely covered with Gesso..
That really gives a nice aged look to it..


Here are just some of the gorgeous flowers that I've used..
And look at that super cute baby pram charm..
I've used one of my Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight to cut out the image and a bigger one for one of the other layers.. They look great together..


Let's take a look at these three amazing laces..
There's the Rhinestones lace and the newer Pearl Rose Organza Trim and some lace ''Fleurie''..
There's also a doily under there..


There are tons of pearls all over the place and of course I had to use some Vintage Seam Binding..
In this case to close the card.. And a little bit on the tag inside..
Then here are some more flowers and a gorgeous pin..


A pic of the inside..
A Bloomy Tag Doohickey on the left with Chubby Baby Feet stamped on and a sweet little bark heart with some cheesecloth and a little  rose on..
The border of the pocket was made with a Doohickey too..


And another pic of this detail..
I've cut out a heart and attached some Tulle Pleat Trim around..
Then I covered it with cheesecloth and lots of roses.. Love how this turned out!


You can find this and many other items in my Etsy shop HERE..

Well.. That's it..
If you still have a question feel free to ask..

Hugs, Tina

Tilda In The Garden

Morning everyone!
This might look as an ordinary card from this side but it's not..
It's a gift box.. Yes.. Another one..
I guess this is my latest obsession.. LOL!


The designer papers are from Maja Design.. 
These are my favourites from the Vintage Summer Basics collection..
The image is called Tilda In The Garden and it's a stamp from the You Are So Special Collection 2011..


Take a look at this pin.. Beautiful, isn't it?
And there's a heart doily hidden under all those layers..
All the paper edges are distressed and machine sewn..


This key charm is one of my favourites.. Wanna know why?
Because you can 'personalize' it ..
I've added some tiny pearls on but you could use some rhinestones, liquid pearls or whatever you think would look great..
Those flower sprays are fantastic and I've added a tiny bit of cheesecloth under the flowers too..


Here's a close up of the two gorgeous laces and this cute little keyhole..
There are lots of pearls all over the box and I've added some Frantage around the image..
The scalloped edge around the lid and in this pic was made using a Martha Stewart punch..


Here are some more flowers.. All from WOC except for the Kort og Godt Rolled Rose..
They are all stained with some gesso..
The pearl spray is also from Kort og Godt..
I've added some Stickles on the flowers Tilda's holding in her hands..
I've used a Spellbinders Oval to cut out the image and a Scalloped Oval under it..


Take a look at this wonderful detail..
I've added some white shabby seam binding all around the box lid and decorated the bow with some more flowers and this fantastic Diamond Chandelier Drop..


The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with both Distress Inks and reinkers..
Let me know if you want me to add the list of colours used for this one..
The postmark on the right is from Magnolia, the one on the left is from Kort og Godt..


And here are two more pics from the sides..


You can find this and many other items in my Etsy shop HERE..

Well.. I hope you enjoyed..
If you still have some question feel free to ask..

Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs, Tina

Doohickey's Only

Yep! That's right..
No Tilda or Edwin today..
Just dies.. And they are ALL Magnolia Doohickey dies..

I had a wooden birdhouse waiting for me in one of the drawers and today I just felt the need to alter it.. LOL!
Here it is..


Huh.. Where do I start..
First I painted the birdhouse in white..
Then I covered it with some printed 'old book' paper and added a little bit of gesso around..
I've used Papermania textured paper and some kraft paper for all the die cuts..


Then it was time to decorate the roof..
It's completely covered with the Tilda Lace die..
When everything was on it's place I added the ice.. With a glue gun..
There's the Peacock resting on the roof and the Cat (Paris Night dies) on the other side watching it..


Lots of dies on the back too..
The Swirl and the Mistletoe..
And the small Dragonfly.. There's one on the front too..
There are also two small butterflies on this project (one on the front and one on the left side) and those are a part of the Magnolia Tree set..
It's the first time I use those but now that I have I'm gonna use them a lot.. They are just sooooo cute..


Ooohh.. Let's not forget the beautiful Angel Wing die.. 
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I Am Roses..
The gorgeous lace I've put around is from Suhafuha.. Check it out! Just gorgeous..


Here' are some more details..
The doilies are from my stash and the ornate leaves and frame are made out of FIMO Air..
I've used Martha Stewart molds for those..
The pearls on the butterflies and dragonflies are also from my stash..


Well..
Not bad for the first time, right?
I'd love to hear what you think..

I'll be back soon with a new Magnolia creation..
Hugs, Tina

Tilda With Many Hearts

Love is in the Air..
And I have another creation full of hearts to show you..


The image I used is called Tilda With Many Hearts from the You Are So Special Collection 2011..
It's one of the first Magnolia stamps I bought and it was the very first Tilda I ever coloured..
Wanna see my first Magnolia card?? Click HERE..
It's been almost three years since then and I've gone a long way, don't you think? ;)


I've used one of my GoKreate dies for this card's shape..
The papers are from Maja Design - Vintage Summer and Vintage Spring Basics..
There's the Angel Wing Doohickey under all those flowers covered with Frantage..
The heart pin is so cute, right?
That small corner is made with some Fimo Air and a homemade mold..


Here's another Magnolia die.. The Tilda Tag.. One of my favourites..
Another thing I can't stop adding to my projects is the doily..
I love my Vintage Seam Binding too..
I've used one of the Marianne Design dies under the image but there are only a few loops peeking out.. All the rest is covered.. 


I've used all kinds of flowers and flower sprays for this card.. They are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I Am Roses and some from a candy I won some time ago..
I've applied some gesso all over them and on other parts of the card..
There are also lots of pearls..
I've used Frantage all around the image too..
All the paper edges are distressed and machine sewn..


The sentiment is also from Magnolia.. From the Raising The Ceiling And Right Through My Heart Collection 2010.. It's glued on a small wooden spool.. So cute..
The Love You vintage trinket from Prima is one of the most wonderful details if you ask me..
And there's something else I wanna talk you about..
You all know how much I love lace, right?
Well I've discovered an amazing Etsy store called Suhafuha filled with gorgeous laces, trims, shabby flowers etc. The lace I've used for this card comes from that shop..
Please click HERE to take a look to all the wonderful stuff Saba stocks and when you place your order (cos' I know you won't resist) please let her know I sent you..

I use both the ink pads and the reinkers..

A card.. With all the pins and pearls I could put on.. LOL!


This little cutie is Tilda Hiding Rose Bouquet from the Lost & Found Collection 2014..
I think these are my favourite papers from the Vintage Summer Basics Collection from Maja Design..

And something I could not live without are all those gorgeous WOC flowers..
The flower sprays are such a wonderful addition to those bouquets, aren't they?


Here are the pins..
And the fantastic Pearl Star Flower..

..a bit of the Pearl Lace With Beads..
All the paper edges are distressed using a Tim Holtz tool and some Walnut Stain Distress Ink..
They are also machine sewn..


There's a doily under all those layers and this gorgeous key charm covered with some Gesso..
I've used Crackle Paint and Gesso all over my project to add that shabby touch..
The tag is a Magnolia Doohickey die called Tilda Tag..


The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
I combine both the ink pads and reinkers..

Hopefully I didn't forget anything..

I really hope you enjoyed..
Thanks for stopping by!
